Former Ekiti State Governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi has congratulated Nigerians for witnessing the new year, urging them to go all out and effect the much desired positive change in the polity this year.
Fayemi in a new year message described 2015 as a year of decision for Nigeria and urged the citizens to join hands with the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the quest to sweep out bad leadership from the country.
“Nigerians have worked and prayed for a Nigerian nation that would meet the vision and aspirations of its founding fathers, this is the time to take a bold step further and effect the change with our votes”, declared Fayemi in the message signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Yinka Oyebode.
Fayemi noted that the future prosperity of the country is tied to the change the people make through the opportunity provided by the February 14, 2015 presidential election and other outlined elections in the year.
The former Governor urged Nigerians to use their votes as the only power they have to make the right change and bail themselves and the country out of the current inept PDP-led government which has proved to be helpless as the country continue to writhe in the pains of general insecurity, corruption, economic hardship and poor leadership.
Fayemi who was chairman of the hugely successful national convention of the APC that produced General Muhammadu Buhari as the party’s presidential flag bearer, said the APC remains the most veritable vehicle for that change which Nigerians have long desired.
According to Fayemi, Nigeria is evidently on a critical trajectory and is ripe for alternation of power. He described APC as an idea whose time has come, adding that the party clearly meets and excels in all the requirements of that desired change.
“While we rejoice and congratulate one another for witnessing year 2015, let us know that it is also a year of change for the country. And the change which we will effect through the ballot come February will usher in the real celebration,” Fayemi added.
